Laser neuron with graphene


Bhavin Shastri, a Banting postdoctoral fellow in our group, has recently conducted research in using graphene as a saturable absorber element in neuron-inspired laser processors. This work has been featured in an IEEE Spectrum article titled, "Graphene Flakes Make Laser Neuron Superfast." A link to the article can be found here. A paper of the work (titled "Spike processing with a graphene excitable laser") has been published in Nature Scientific Reports, which can be found here.
